The artists Matthew Dalziel (b 1957) and Louise Scullion (b. 1966) have collaborated from the early 1990s under the name Dalziel + Scullion. Both Scottish by birth, they attended the Glasgow School of Art respectively for an MA and a BA.

Their practice encompasses various media including video, photography and sculpture and their interest focuses on the relationship between man and nature and on the phenomenon of increasing urbanisation.

Their solo exhibitions included The Most Beautiful Thing (1995) for the Scottish Arts Council and Dalziel + Scullion for the Centre of Contemporary Art in Glasgow. This exhibition then toured to Ikon Gallery in Birmingham and Arnolfini Gallery in Bristol in 1996.

In 1997 a permanent installation at Heathrow airport, entitled Migrator, was unveiled, while in 2001 Meltwater was presented at Sadler’s Wells Theatre.

Other installation projects included Rain (2000) at Oriel 31, Newtown; Another Place (2001), a video installation shown at Aberdeen Art Gallery and a sculpture exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Examples of their work are held by Arts Council England Collection, British Council Collection and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

The Dalziel + Scullion studio is located in Mangersta in the Outer Hebrides in Scotland.
